        World War One Artilleryman's Trench Diary

      France, 1918. Soft Cover. Very Good. 32mo - over 4" - 5" tall. This trench diary is far more interesting than most First World War journals and includes a good bit of combat content in addition to recounting the routine daily activities of a World War One artilleryman from Providence, Rhode Island who was assigned to th3 103rd Field Artillery, 26th Division (Yankee Division). Arnold began the year hospitalized, probably at Coetquidan, with acute endocarditis. After his release, he spent the rest of the month drilling, performing guard duty, training with his battery's guns and caissons, doing stable work, caring for horses, maintaining equipment, and hauling ammunition. In early March, the the 26th Division departed for Soissons where it served with the French Army in occupying the Chemin des Dames Sector. During its time at Chemin des Dames, Arnold's battery experienced its "first real air raid. . . . Germans were right above us and French searchlight and guns were trying to bring them down." Later in February, Arnold "saw the French bring down a German Plane. Both Germans were killed outright and the machine was wrecked." By early April, Arnold's battery had relocated to the Toul-Boucq Sector and began to encounter more Germans. He notes that on 7 April he "went out on the line . . . to repair a break and before I found it the Boche began to shell Dead Man's Curve. Their shots landed very close to me and I laid in a shallow trench for protection. . . . One man killed and three wounded." During another shelling, a round came "very close to our station, one struck directly across us throwing stones into the dugout." On 20 April, the unit came under a "big German barrage which lasted all through the day. . . . I worked very hard under shell fire and airplane observation repairing lines . . . driven out once by machine gun fire from plane." The next day there was "beacoup work repairing damage done to our lines. They were literally shot to pieces. At least three ambulances were overturned, one big truck and a couple of horses that I know about. Our boys from the battery who were in S---- handled themselves nobly. O.T. 12 was destroyed killing some infantrymen. . . . Broadhead and a lieutenant were killed and Lowell, Jordan Cheeves and others wounded. The Germans were driven out . . . but not until after they had killed many of our men and taken prisoners including C Battery Anti-tankers." Two days later, "Barnes, Butterworth and I were shelled while returning from linework, a fragment hitting Barnes in the back of the neck." Artillery duels continued throughout May and June destroying one section of the battery's dugouts, exploding an ammunition warehouse in Beaumont, and killing another member of Arnold's battery. In July, the unit participated in the Champagne- Aisne-Marne Operations with Arnold first noting that "The French & Americans made an attack gaining several kilometers," and later recounting that "Our infantry took the hill . . . and kept right on going. Lasted all morning and part of the afternoon. At 10 o'clock the line was beyond our range of fire and nearly out of sight from our O.T." During the St. Mihel Offensive in September, Arnold relates that while apparently following the American advance, he "went on a short exploration high on the hill. . . . Found a high powered antiaircraft searchlight in ground also a dynamo and engine which supplied light and power for the various uses. Many strongly fortified trenches and positions. Great view. . . . German 77 right side of the position." Although the division participated in the last campaign of the war, the Meuse-Argonne Offensive, Arnold's unit was allowed to stand down on 20 October and "returned to the rear echelon" where it remained until the armistice on 11 November. Approximately 110 pages of handwritten text, most in pencil. For the most part, the writing is legible and easily read although very small in some places. Six of the pages have become very smudges and are unreadable; several more pages are partially smudged but much of their text can still be read. The sound binding has been professionally mended, and all pages are present. The flexible cover has some minor wear.

        My Antonia

      Boston: Houghton, Mifflin, 1918 - First Edition of the authorÕs widely acknowledged masterpiece. The plates are in the first state; front hinge cracked; rear hinge mended, but overall very nearly fine; in a custom, brown quarter-morocco slipcase and chemise. The first printing comprised 3500 copies, of which about 2500 were issued with the plates in the first state, printed on coated paper. Cather was meticulous in her specifications for the bookÕs production, commissioning W.T. Benda to do the illustrations. Particularly concerned that the illustrations be at their proper places in the book, she also wanted them to be on the same paper as the text. Apparently displeased with the production and promotion of this book, Cather subsequently left Houghton, Mifflin for Knopf, her publisher for the remainder of her career.

        Joan & Peter.

      London, Cassell & Co.,, 1918. The Story of an Education. Octavo. Original green cloth, titles and decoration to front board in blind and to spine gilt. With the dust jacket. Some toning to contents typical to Cassell books from the later war years, but an exceptionally nice copy in the lightly rubbed, frayed and mildly chipped dust jacket. First edition, first impression. A major association copy with the author's signed presentation inscription to the half-title, "To Thomas Hardy in homage from H. G. Wells", and with Hardy's Max Gate book plate to the front pastedown. Hardy and Wells were of course literary titans of their era and although perhaps would seem somewhat strange bedfellows Wells held the elder man in great regard. This particular work met with a rather mixed critical reception but Hardy was especially generous about it. David C. Smith reports in H. G. Wells: Desperately Mortal: A Biography (New Haven and London: Yale University Press, 1986) that Hardy "praised the book and read it aloud to his wife in the evening", presumably from this, the copy given to him by the author.

        [Manuscript Journal]: Carter, recently graduated from Yale, awaits his posting to the Embassy in Rome, and records his activities and adventures in Washington, D.C. in the Summer of 1918

      Folio journal. Half red leather gilt and cloth. 200pp. Carter's ownership name, edgewear on the boards, else near fine. Of the 200 blank lined pages, Carter has used 79 pages written in a clear and legible hand, comprising approximately 28,000 words, consisting of almost daily or every other day entries between June 24 and September 17, 1918, plus three additional entries to finish out the calendar year.John Franklin Carter (1897--1967) was born in Fall River, Massachusetts into a large family. He attended Yale University and went into the diplomatic service. His later career included work as a correspondent for The New York Times and London Daily Chronicle. He also wrote a syndicated column called "We, The People," under his pseudonym "Jay Franklin" and worked in both the Roosevelt and Truman administrations. He was the author of several books of history, and wrote mysteries under the pen name "Diplomat."Carter inscribes his name and two addresses in the front of the journal: "Williamstown, Massachusetts and the American Embassy in Rome." Carter uses the bulk of the journal (54 pp.) to describe his summer in Washington DC, following his graduation from Yale. He keeps frequent company with some of his fellow classmates, including Thornton Wilder, Stephen Vincent Benet, and William Rose Benet. The journal is liberally interspersed with original poetry by Carter.Beginning in June, while working as a cipher clerk at the State Department in Washington, he commences the journal: "I intend... to keep a species of record of myself. It is in no way a diary, a bald emasculated time table of doings and journeyings, nor is it one of those awfully intimate soul-revelations, generally revealing nothing but dalliance with the lewd and half-hearted lusts. This book will, I hope, be a record of me and of my thoughts. Therefore whatever account I may give of my life will be in reality an invertebrate symposium of loose -- probably in both senses -- thoughts and whimsicalities... ."21 years old, and just finished with college, he is cursed with the nearsightedness which prevents him from joining the military with his friends. Instead, he awaits permission from the draft board to sail to his embassy post in Rome for the duration of the war, but is caught in red tape. "I am a young man, alone in a large city, on an ample salary, with two gay comrades, Bill Taylor & Thornton Wilder, and appetites. I like liquor in its more intellectual [basis?] and tobacco." He spends the summer arguing with the draft board, retaking his draft physical, and carousing with his friends who include not only Wilder and Taylor, but Stephen and William Benet. They go to the theater, or spend the evenings drinking and philosophizing. One particular evening Carter records: "Thornton, who knows everything about everything, was much shocked at our discussing mysticism... He withdrew and hummed indifferently until the topic changed."Carter also includes many of his attempts at writing poetry, some of which he shows to Wilder who does not think much of it. The crew bumps into Monty Woolley at the Shoreham, who had become a lieutenant in Army Intelligence (Woolley, later a well-known actor, was also a Yale graduate). Finally, in late July, he gets permission to obtain his passport. He attends a swimming party at William C. Bullitt's (another Yale graduate and later Ambassador to Russia) in McLean, Virginia. Carter comments: "Mrs. Bullitt is a bit hard, affected, head-turned, and insincere. I would not trust Bill Bullitt around the corner with a nickel but they are nice hosts."By early August, as he is preparing to depart for Rome, and parting with his friend Steve [Benet], they compose a "Last Song of Dear Old Yale" [which is transcribed in the journal]. Carter's ocean voyage to his new post, aboard the S.S. Rochambeau is recorded by him in the form of a letter to his mother, copied into the journal. He describes sighting submarines and whales, comments on fellow passengers, says the troops on board that he initially thought were Czecho-Slovak are actually Poles. "There is a funny crowd aboard her. A considerable number of soldiers and officers, oodles of YMCA & K of C men, lots of YMCA girls, all over draft age, & Red Cross nurses galore. Spaniards, South Americans, French & Italians. Plenty of Americans, all traveling on government business."With a bit of self-importance he tells his mother she can make his letters from "overseas service" available to the Yale Lit for publication since "the poor old magazine will be pretty hard up for material this next year." The S.S. Rochambeau arrived in Bordeaux on August 19, and by September 5, Carter was settled into his post in Rome: "Well, this begins my diary again and hereafter I hope to make my entries oh very faithfully..." He does record his early observations of the city for a short time, but on November 11 armistice is declared. The final entry in mid-December says he has been working on a memorandum on the Balkans for the Ambassador who is on his way to Paris to persuade President Wilson to return with him for a visit to Italy: "We of the Embassy alone know how much depends on this expedition. If Wilson does not come to Italy -- it will be an outrage to national pride, international courtesy, and elemental justice..." as Italy was as instrumental in winning the war as France. The young and restless Carter has begun to take life a bit more seriously. His last note in the journal says: "I am becoming very serious, my mustache is assuming proportions -- I shall be ruined for all purposes of ordinary social intercourse very shortly."During FDR's administration, Carter and Roosevelt became good friends and allies, and Carter expressed his concern for the need of a better intelligence gathering system within the White House. According to Joseph E. Persico, the author of Roosevelt's Secret War (2001): "Carter made his pitch to the President for the informal White House intelligence ring and found FDR receptive... The man (Carter) seemed to know everybody - officials, diplomats, the entire press corps domestic and foreign, and corporate executives all over the globe. He also had access to the National Broadcasting Company's worldwide shortwave network. And FDR grasped that Carter's profession offered the perfect cover for delivering intelligence, a Washington journalist coming to the White House occasionally to interview the President." Carter had become a "very serious" man indeed.An engaging and insightful journal from a thoughtful young man whose friends and acquaintances spanned both the literary and political world. .

        [Manuscript Journal]: Carter, recently graduated from Yale, awaits his posting to the Embassy in Rome, and records his activities and adventures in Washington, D.C. in the Summer of 1918

      Folio journal. Half red leather gilt and cloth. 200pp. Carter's ownership name, edgewear on the boards, else near fine. Of the 200 blank lined pages, Carter has used 79 pages written in a clear and legible hand, comprising approximately 28,000 words, consisting of almost daily or every other day entries between June 24 and September 17, 1918, plus three additional entries to finish out the calendar year.John Franklin Carter (1897--1967) was born in Fall River, Massachusetts into a large family. He attended Yale University and went into the diplomatic service. His later career included work as a correspondent for The New York Times and London Daily Chronicle. He also wrote a syndicated column called "We, The People," under his pseudonym "Jay Franklin" and worked in both the Roosevelt and Truman administrations. He was the author of several books of history, and wrote mysteries under the pen name "Diplomat."Carter inscribes his name and two addresses in the front of the journal: "Williamstown, Massachusetts and the American Embassy in Rome." Carter uses the bulk of the journal (54 pp.) to describe his summer in Washington DC, following his graduation from Yale. He keeps frequent company with some of his fellow classmates, including Thornton Wilder, Stephen Vincent Benet, and William Rose Benet. The journal is liberally interspersed with original poetry by Carter.Beginning in June, while working as a cipher clerk at the State Department in Washington, he commences the journal: "I intend... to keep a species of record of myself. It is in no way a diary, a bald emasculated time table of doings and journeyings, nor is it one of those awfully intimate soul-revelations, generally revealing nothing but dalliance with the lewd and half-hearted lusts. This book will, I hope, be a record of me and of my thoughts. Therefore whatever account I may give of my life will be in reality an invertebrate symposium of loose -- probably in both senses -- thoughts and whimsicalities... ."21 years old, and just finished with college, he is cursed with the nearsightedness which prevents him from joining the military with his friends. Instead, he awaits permission from the draft board to sail to his embassy post in Rome for the duration of the war, but is caught in red tape. "I am a young man, alone in a large city, on an ample salary, with two gay comrades, Bill Taylor & Thornton Wilder, and appetites. I like liquor in its more intellectual [basis?] and tobacco." He spends the summer arguing with the draft board, retaking his draft physical, and carousing with his friends who include not only Wilder and Taylor, but Stephen and William Benet. They go to the theater, or spend the evenings drinking and philosophizing. One particular evening Carter records: "Thornton, who knows everything about everything, was much shocked at our discussing mysticism... He withdrew and hummed indifferently until the topic changed."Carter also includes many of his attempts at writing poetry, some of which he shows to Wilder who does not think much of it. The crew bumps into Monty Woolley at the Shoreham, who had become a lieutenant in Army Intelligence (Woolley, later a well-known actor, was also a Yale graduate). Finally, in late July, he gets permission to obtain his passport. He attends a swimming party at William C. Bullitt's (another Yale graduate and later Ambassador to Russia) in McLean, Virginia. Carter comments: "Mrs. Bullitt is a bit hard, affected, head-turned, and insincere. I would not trust Bill Bullitt around the corner with a nickel but they are nice hosts."By early August, as he is preparing to depart for Rome, and parting with his friend Steve [Benet], they compose a "Last Song of Dear Old Yale" [which is transcribed in the journal]. Carter's ocean voyage to his new post, aboard the S.S. Rochambeau is recorded by him in the form of a letter to his mother, copied into the journal. He describes sighting submarines and whales, comments on fellow passengers, says the troops on board that he initially thought were Czecho-Slovak are actually Poles. "There is a funny crowd aboard her. A considerable number of soldiers and officers, oodles of YMCA & K of C men, lots of YMCA girls, all over draft age, & Red Cross nurses galore. Spaniards, South Americans, French & Italians. Plenty of Americans, all traveling on government business."With a bit of self-importance he tells his mother she can make his letters from "overseas service" available to the Yale Lit for publication since "the poor old magazine will be pretty hard up for material this next year." The S.S. Rochambeau arrived in Bordeaux on August 19, and by September 5, Carter was settled into his post in Rome: "Well, this begins my diary again and hereafter I hope to make my entries oh very faithfully..." He does record his early observations of the city for a short time, but on November 11 armistice is declared. The final entry in mid-December says he has been working on a memorandum on the Balkans for the Ambassador who is on his way to Paris to persuade President Wilson to return with him for a visit to Italy: "We of the Embassy alone know how much depends on this expedition. If Wilson does not come to Italy -- it will be an outrage to national pride, international courtesy, and elemental justice..." as Italy was as instrumental in winning the war as France. The young and restless Carter has begun to take life a bit more seriously. His last note in the journal says: "I am becoming very serious, my mustache is assuming proportions -- I shall be ruined for all purposes of ordinary social intercourse very shortly."During FDR's administration, Carter and Roosevelt became good friends and allies, and Carter expressed his concern for the need of a better intelligence gathering system within the White House. According to Joseph E. Persico, the author of Roosevelt's Secret War (2001): "Carter made his pitch to the President for the informal White House intelligence ring and found FDR receptive... The man (Carter) seemed to know everybody - officials, diplomats, the entire press corps domestic and foreign, and corporate executives all over the globe. He also had access to the National Broadcasting Company's worldwide shortwave network. And FDR grasped that Carter's profession offered the perfect cover for delivering intelligence, a Washington journalist coming to the White House occasionally to interview the President." Carter had become a "very serious" man indeed.An engaging and insightful journal from a thoughtful young man whose friends and acquaintances spanned both the literary and political world. .

In the information printed on the underside of the lid to the box of this theater, the publishers announce that more plays are in production. In fact, the company would, over the next 38 years, issue a total of 23 plays, each of which could be shown in any of their theaters. The publishers were known for their beautiful, detailed and elaborate sets. Each play consisted of two booklets containing a list of the characters and the script, the scenery to be used for each act, and a color printed card containing the characters to be cut out and used in the play. These were all contained in a folding envelope which had instructions for how to set up the play printed on the rear flap.

      München G W Dietrich 1918 - Quer 4°. 16 nn. Bll. Mit 14 Farblithographien von Lily Hildebrandt. Gelber Orig.-Pappband mit farb. Deckelvignette und Schmuckvorsätzen. Dietrichs Münchener Künstler-Bilderbücher, Buch 33. - Ihme III/141. Vollmer II/444. Brüggemann, II/139, 389. Erstausgabe dieses bedeutenden Beispiels für das experimentelle Bilderbuch der Hinterglasmalerin und Hölzelschülerin. Lily Hildebrandt (Fürth 1887 - 1974 Stuttgart) stammte aus der jüd. Familie Uhlmann. Sie war zunächst Schülerin von Ad. Meyer in Berlin. 1913 zog sie nach Stuttgart und war dort Meisterschülerin von Adolf Hölzel. Ihr Stuttgarter Haus wurde nach 1919 zu einem Treffpunkt der Avantgarde. "Die Bilder wirken wie aus Buntpapierstücken zusammengesetzt und erzielen ihre Wirkung durch geometrisierte, farbenfrohe großflächige Formen. Auffallend ist das Bemühen der Illustratorin um geschlossene, durchgearbeitete Bildkompositionen. Sie gliedert die Flächen häufig in zwei oder drei farbig unterschiedliche Grundflächen und verzahnt diese dann durch kleinere, meist figürliche Elemente. So entstehen neben recht plakativen Bildern durchaus spannungsvolle Bilder." (Brüggemann, Bd. 2, S. 139, 389 nach Hoffmann/Thiele 199). Der Protagonist dieses Buches, Rainer Hildebrandt (1914 - 2004), Sohn des Kunsthistorikers Hans Hildebrandt und Lily Hildebrandts, war Freund und Schüler Albrecht Haushofers, Widerstandskämpfer und Gründer bzw. Leiter des Museums "Haus am Checkpoint Charlie". - Mit einer vierzeiligen eigenh.

        DOCUMENT ***Signed***

      Dayton, Ohio 1918 - Signed "Orville Wright and Charles E. Taylor" in black ink. This check is dated May 18, 1918 and is payable to Chas. Taylor and signed by aviation pioneer Orville Wright. Check has been endorsed on the back by the payee and signed C. E. Taylor. Charles Taylor built the first aircraft engine used by the Wright brothers and was a vital contributor of mechanical skills in the building and maintaining of early Wright engines and airplanes Born in Dayton, Ohio, in 1871, Orville Wright and his elder brother, Wilbur Wright, were the inventors of the world's first successful airplane. The brothers successfully conducted the first free, controlled flight of a power-driven airplane on December 17, 1903. They subsequently became successful businessmen, filling contracts for airplanes in both Europe and the United States. Today, the Wright brothers are considered the "fathers of modern aviation." Orville is also known for developing technology for the U.S. Army. He died in Dayton on January 30, 1948. Charles E. Taylor, born May 24, 1868 on a farm in Illinois, was involved in many historical events related to the growth of aviation. He was involved in the first powered flight, was the first airport manager, helped build the first military plane, was involved in the first transcontinental flight, was inducted into the USAF Museum Aviation Hall of Fame as the first airplane mechanic, and the FAA named a lifetime maintenance award after him.

        John Wisden's Cricketers' Almanack for 1918 - 1918 Original Hardback Wisden. Very Good Condition. 9/10

      1918. Hi, Here we have a very rare 1918 Original Hardback Wisden, in Very Good Condition. This is a fabulous book, the only downside and this is being very picky is a bookplate has been removed from the front left page. You probably wouldn't notice but I have to point it out. The front board is superb, hardly a mark and bright gilt,the spine cloth is excellent with bright gilt, it really is a top book. Super rear board too. Excellent, original hinges, and very clean inside just an ex owners name to the front right pastedown. If being picky there is a slight bobbling to front board cloth and inside a sort of corrigated iron appearance for a couple of pages. A wisden to own and brag about.
